NCSS Goes Hawaiian! 

 We are sad to announce that Jerry Forte passed away on Saturday, December 29th.


Jerry was a long time member of the North County Senior Softball family, and a good friend to all.  Deteriorating health,exacerbated by a couple of falls, proved too much for Jerry to overcome.  The last two or three seasons were very hard for Jerry.  His health was failing and his ability to play and enjoy the game had slipped past him.  He always had a good word to say and lit up the room when he came in.  Jerry had a biting sarcasm at times, but always funny and glad to join the party.

We will keep Jerry in our prayers and send our condolences to Dottie. 
We'll miss you Jerry.

Fellow North County Senior Softball brothers and sisters,

You, your family member and your friends are all invited to join together to participate in some goodwill softball games against some future friends in the island of Kauai.  Anyone is invited to play at least 3 games, and we are NOT looking for All Star players but anyone that wants to have fun playing some of our island softball players that are exited to have fun on the field with us from the mainland.

As of now, am requesting all those that want to play on the team to let me know as soon as possible, so that we can secure some rates for flights and for Hotel room.  Of course the more we get on one plan, the better the pricing is for all of us.  Those that want to invite our wives, family or friends on the same travel plan will need to give me their names also.  I am requesting by the end of February (28-Feb-19) to collect $100.00 each as a security deposit, that is refundable until we have a firm nonrefundable date in the future, possibly the 31st of July 2019.

Those that want to travel on their own, outside of the group package that we are working on, may do that on their own, but I will still need the names of those wanting to play on the team and those that will be joining us for, pot luck meals of a Luau that is in the planning.  If anyone has questions regarding this venue, feel free to contact me on my cell at 1-760-936-2100 or better yet, by emailing me at al@bereadyinc.com.

Nothing is set in stone as of now but by the end of February when I know how committed we are with this plan, I will inform everyone.  The plan is to depart San Diego on Monday the 21st of October and to return on Sunday the 27th of October.  I am trying to get a group price for Air and for Hotel.  Car rental will be on your own and if we can get a group luau, we will talk about that in the future.  We hope to play games on Thursday, Friday and Saturday only and the rest of the time will be eating, drinking, swimming, golfing, shopping, touring, laughing and for me eating again.

As of now we have about 20 committed and most of them are bringing family or friends but I want to put together 2 or 3 teams to play and have fun.  Everyone is invited.

Aloha,


​Al Cabacungan

Thanks to Bill Swink for providing this photo of a field in Evergreen, Colorado. It kind of bears a resemblance to the outfield at one of our Monday morning pickup games.
